Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

🌆 How do I skill up on English in Houston, TX and what are my options in terms of commitment?

Besides self-study using apps, you have 4 primary opportunities for learning English interactively in Houston, TX. First, universities and community colleges are an especially good idea for in-state residents. Also, check centers for continuing education and professional studies (they are cheaper.) Your other option can be local specialized language academies that are cheaper and flexible in schedule and requirements. Third, government-supported learning centers usually offer cheaper group and more expensive in-person courses. Fourth, you can look for a private English tutor in Houston, TX. If flexibility is key, you can compare local Houston, TX and online English tutors.

🎟 Is it expensive to learn English and how much should English tutors ask?

For university and college courses you can estimate English course cost by dividing annual tuition by ten (one course is usually 3 out of 30 credit hours offered) to get the rate for 1/2 of a hundred course hours each semester. Language centers and individual English tutors charge $30-55 an hourly group lesson, with individual classes starting from $50 or more. Some of the more affordable English tutors can be found online, with tuition on Preply averaging 15 and tutor rates varying widely based on tutor hometown, experience and languages the tutor can teach in.

📚 What level of English do I need to sign up for a course?

Planned classes vary widely in terms of textbook quality, homework level and testing, so research all such requirements in advance. With personal English tutors you can find out in advance for whom the tutor is effective with and which other expertise they make available (like instruction for beginners, etc.) For maximum flexibility, choose a tutor from many teaching online.

🔥 Why is English so hard and are there ways to learn it faster?

One-size-fits-all language instruction practiced in schools is not the most effective way to learn English. According to experts, you can gain basic English fluency in 300 hours from zero knowledge. Studying and getting feedback 5 hours a week you will be able to understand most words, speak on some level, get proficient in daily routines in about a year. Finding native speakers is not a practical option for everyone, so online classes are a fast and affordable way of acquiring the basic knowledge of English. After acquiring basic skills, online marketplaces like Preply have English tutors who specialize in intensive classes for intermediate and advanced level practitioners.

🤷 How long does it take to learn English?

Some people have a natural ability and learn languages quickly, but for most to go beyond the basics and gain working fluency in English will demand at least 600 hours of dedication. The required duration of time can differ quite a bit depending on your available level of English or knowledge of other languages in the same group. As soon as you've learned the basics it is recommended to use the language as often as possible: watch news and movies, start a journal or write posts and comments using your new language skills, look for native speakers to speak with, try as many as possible ways to think and speak in English out loud. If this is not easy you can also take conversational English classes online.

🤳 Can I pick my own English tutor?

In learning centers, there's a chance you can choose your own tutor (from the ones who already work there). Online, absolutely! The largest selection of verified English tutors with extensive profiles and comprehensive reviews is available on online language learning marketplaces like Preply.

🗓 What's the best time to schedule classes?

Colleges typically schedule classes twice a week over a semester (15-week period). Language schools as a rule make available shorter, 8-week, 12-week, and 16-week course sessions. Online, the number of lessons is really up to you, with early morning, day, evening and night classes available, on weekdays and/or weekends.
